I've got both the 200/2G VR-I and the Zeiss 135/2 Apo. Both quite excellent lenses obviously, living near the top of what is possible with lens design, although rendering is different as one would expect.

I used the 200/2 for portraiture and believe it or not, headshots, but holy hell does that thing get tiresome to hand hold. I'm likely to use the Zeiss more, even though it's manual focus, for people work though.
